When Carbs Are My Friends
I have 5 miles of trails to do tomorrow - MY FIRST TRAIL RUN! I know! I've been running since 2009, and I am just now getting out there on the trail. I've been intimidated by them, I guess, and with 5 friends peer pressuring me to go, it is so hard to say no. Five miles isn't much to carbo-load for, but I heard it's a very challenging, very hilly trail run, so I don't care, I'm carbing up just in case it's all I've got on me to survive.
Have you run on trails before? Any tips? I'm really excited and a little anxious. I just hope I'm not so slow that I get left behind because I have no sense of direction whatsoever, and I'll cry if I get lost! LOL! Will let you know how it goes tomorrow! Happy "long run" running to you all!
